Ask Jason Brown how life has been going since he moved to Toronto late this spring, and you get exactly the answer you would expect from the ebullient skater: It's great.
Exploring the city, getting to know two-time World champion Evgenia Medvedeva of Russia, spending time with Medvedeva's mom, Zhanna Devyatova, has all been fantastic. Evgenia's English is excellent, and they've got a workaround for Zhanna. "We just use this translation app, talk into our phones and go back and forth all day long," Brown said. "Hopefully, the translation is right." Scratch the surface a bit, talk about the changes new coaches Brian Orser and Tracy Wilson are making to Brown's skating, and his smile never slips. But he doesn't disguise the struggle. "I'm not going to sugarcoat it. It hasn't been an easy transition," Brown said. "It's been exciting, though. No matter how tough the days at the rink are, I'm always excited to come back for another session, try another new thing. No matter how horrible a session is, how much I'm struggling, I can't wait to get on another session and try again." Some aspects of training at Toronto's Cricket Skating and Curling Club are right in Brown's wheelhouse. Wilson holds her renowned stroking classes every day, and Brown is eating them up. "When I first got to Toronto, I worked with Tracy for three hours a day just on stroking -- the way you bend your knees, the way you move," he said. "And I was exhausted, did I ever get a workout. Having a coach focus on the look of the crossovers, the knee bend, and the feel of the ice -- that's really cool."
Local movements vs. Global movements
Workouts like “Cindy” or “Murph” involve large amounts of local fatigue. During pieces like these, athletes are more limited by smaller muscle-groups than they are by peripheral limitations like “breathing” or “engine.”
These pieces are still useful, but should not make up the bulk of your conditioning work. It’s important that our athletes are able to improve their cardiorespiratory system without being limited by their ability to perform high-volume local movements like push-ups.
For group classes, folks often underestimate the power of simply getting stronger and improving weak-links. Case in point, shown is two lifetime PRs in the Front Squat (365#) and Push Jerk (340#). Neither of the two lifts I’ve trained in the last 16 weeks/28 weeks respectively.
This is how someone that has a training age of 20+ years can still hit new records without training the aforementioned lifts.
More importantly, my body consistently feels better than the days I used to train the lifts regularly!
GIGANTES DE IML. Definitivamente un hombre con los resultados que todos deseamos tener. Todo empieza en la mente de las personas. Y en mi mente ya empezó la visualización de mis sueños. @j_sonbrown Chairman500 de la compañía, otro ejemplo de las personas a quien seguiré escuchando. #imarketslive#trading#networkermarketing#networker#jasonbrown#mindset
80% of the population suffers from lower back disorder. The reverse hyper invented by @westsidebarbellofficial has unique capabilities that cannot be duplicated. While this piece of equipment is space consuming and expensive, it’s a great piece of equipment for CrossFit boxes to have.
Thanks @healthystepsnutrition @nicole_rd_hsn for the demo! Good technique for a first time user!
